  1. 1652 and 1674 moved back to Malvern, while 1534 is currently driving down Warden Ave. according to Transsee.
  2. 1200-1684 used an older revision of the PCS that was slightly more reliable. Starting with 1685 (and carrying over to the 1700s), they moved to a new PCS which was slightly less reliable. In addition, the major reason why they specifically chose to rebuild the 1200s instead (while they were still deciding to keep some NGs and retire the others) was because of the PCS reliability. They later did some 1500s too but those rebuilds are a bit more limited in terms of scope. None of the 1500s actually got a full rebuild. They merely had repaints, some body work, and a replaced engine on some (a
  3. 1128 is still at Malvern, but 1633 moved back to Mount Dennis.
  4. It's been scrapped according to someone's post on Instagram. Here is a photo by user transit.enthusiast:
  5. The S50 VIIs aren't a really good example to use as they were retired prematurely due to emissions concerns. They would have lasted a few more years otherwise. The ISL OG VIIs are only 13-14 years old right now, so I think they still have some life left in them. Historically, buses with major issues (eg. CNG VIs, D40-87s, D40-90s, CNG 1990 Vs, etc) were the only ones that were retired prematurely (14-15 years old), due to structural issues and in the case of the VIs, difficulty with converting them to diesel. The 7900s/8000s don't have any real issues so I can see them going until 2023 or
  6. True... I forgot about that revised model. The first run PS3s are hard to come by in perfectly working condition. I actually found mine in a Value Village for $10 and it was working perfectly. The Wii, regardless of model (except for the Wii mini), is extremely easy to hack with homebrew. Fun fact: Wiis without GameCube ports actually DO have the hardware inside them to play GameCube games (the motherboard was literally unchanged, Nintendo even left solder pads on for the ports haha) but Nintendo simply cheaped out by changing the disc drive and removing the ports. The software to p
  7. I had another console enter my collection! This one is a limited edition blue Wii (it's really hard to find here in Canada, it's slightly more common in the US, Europe, and Australia). I really like the colour, but it's a shame that Nintendo took out the GameCube ports and compatibility on the blue Wiis, as well as the revised black and white ones. Oh well, I have another Wii I could use so not a big deal.
  8. Some interesting bugs I found: When logged out, I noticed that the National Capital Region section has disappeared (tried refreshing and opening a new tab). However, when I log back in, it shows up fine. I was using that section earlier today while logged out and it was working fine. Speaking of logging in, I noticed that I couldn't log in with either the red or blue themes. I have to go into the Chameleon theme and log in fron there. This is a very minor bug, but I also noticed that all the sections just randomly had the word "New" next to them and they were bolded as if I hadn
  9. I just found out that a new friend I have been speaking to on another forum for a few weeks online is unfortunately likely no longer with us. She made a post saying that she wanted to let her friends and family know that she did not want help or support and that she was seriously considering suicide. I spoke to one of my other online friends who knew her online (she had been unresponsive which was very unlike her) and she said that she tried to contact our friend after seeing the message that our friend posted about her thinking of suicide but our friend kept stonewalling her and dodging
  10. My chemistry teacher told me that I'm the first (and likely only) person in the history of his teaching career who he has taught not twice, not three times, but four times. He says that getting him five times is basically impossible so it doesn't look like anyone will beat my record any time soon. I previously had him for grade 9 academic science (my very first semester in high school), grade 11 university chemistry (two semesters ago), grade 12 university biology (last semester), and now grade 12 university chemistry (this semester). This is also the third semester in a row I've had him
  11. It's really rare when it occurs for me. This may have been just a random one time thing. However, I think I know the cause of the two previous events (they both occurred in 2017 fairly close to each other). At the time, I was taking some medication for a few months that made it difficult for my kidneys to get rid of all the protein that accumulated. To compensate for this, I had to drink almost 4 litres of water (along with some soda, juice, or milk) every day (doctor's orders). Because I found it difficult to drink in the morning because I was nauseated, I would often have to drink most
  12. These two photos did not come out right at all. My iPhone just wouldn't focus. In the case of the first photo, I was too close to the bus to get all of it in the frame plus it was unfocused. The second just refused to focus but would have been decent otherwise.
  13. Edit: quoted wrong post I'm going to say not. 2008 Orion V with EPA 2007 ISL/B400R (those are uncommon) or 1992 Orion V with 6V92TA/HTB-748?
  14. A WTF/FML moment during my spare period at school: I had an unopened ginger ale can in my bag today that I was saving for home. My school binder happened to be in there as well. At the end of third period, everything seemed fine. However, at the very beginning of fourth period, I get my binder out and it is soaked. I found out that it was coming from the ginger ale (the top was unopened but the bottom was wet, possibly a manufacturing defect or something) and promptly threw the can out. I didn't even know that was possible. I didn't hit my bag on anything and the can wasn't poked by anyth
